Tree Ten­ders is a course from Tree Pitts­burgh that teach­es about trees in urban or built-up envi­ron­ments — col­lec­tive­ly termed the urban for­est. Specif­i­cal­ly, our cur­ricu­lum cov­ers tree biol­o­gy & ben­e­fits, tree iden­ti­fi­ca­tion for begin­ners, tree plant­i­ng, tree care, includ­ing prun­ing, and how to get involved in efforts to pro­tect and grow your patch of the urban forest.

We are delight­ed to part­ner with Upstream Pgh for this train­ing in the Nine Mile Run Water­shed. All are wel­come to attend, and we offer a spe­cial com­mu­ni­ty train­ing slid­ing scale rate for this par­tic­u­lar course.  Lunch will be pro­vid­ed. Reg­is­tra­tion is essen­tial.

Please note that this course is not appro­pri­ate for par­tic­i­pants under 16 years of age.
